More4 On Air Identity Style Guide


Typography

More4 Menu Bold is used for Clarity-generated menus ONLY.

More4 Bold is the standard font for on-air graphics. There are four sizes for most on-air situations. Promo endframes will tend to use sizes A & B only.

type size A

Usage: timing, title and other information where there is a small word count and a lot of space.

type size B

Usage: timing, title and other information where words are too long or numerous for size A.

type size C

Usage: type on credit squeezes when there is not enough room for size B. This size is NOT used on promo endboards.

Typography on endboards has to fit into the area defined by the grey panel so as not to interfere with the resolving More4 logo on the right. Break lines rather than allowing type to get too close to the logo.

Notes on endboard animations

Promos end with a logo and type animation sequence. There are seven different animations to choose from with varying durations.

The logo wipes off VT to black and wipes on the TX information. Promo directors need to bear in mind that a max amount of 2 sec is needed in vision at the end of a promo because the logo animates over moving footage. For example Animation #2 (shown) takes 2 seconds and 15 frames to wipe off picture and wipe on TX. Clear TX should hold for at least 3 seconds. Animation
